Cappadocia, Turkey
travelscope

Cappadocia, in Turkey's rural heart, is a natural wonder and a cultural treasure chest. It is where the East and West seem to have collided and "fairy chimneys" -- fantastic volcanic ash formations -- have risen from the land and tower over beautifully carved valleys. As part of his journey through the Cappadocia Region, Joseph floats in a hot air balloon above the homes and underground cities that are carved out of the limestone rock of the Goreme Valley. He visits holy mosques and ancient churches, delights in Cappadocia's slower, gentler lifestyle and meets the artisans of the region's traditional arts and crafts -- rug weaving, ceramics and water painting.

Episode Duration: 26 minutes and 46 seconds
